Two Kids Shot Over Kool-Aid?

According to local news reports, two kids were shot today in Detroit's Brightmoor neighborhood when an argument over how to make Kool-Aid turned violent.

I swear, I'm not making this up. Two kids really and truly were shot today because of an argument over Kool-Aid.



This, ladies and gentlemen, is why I write fiction. Reality is just too damn strange to be believed some times.

3D Printing Comes to Fashion

3D printing has been around for awhile now, but it has finally come up with something that truly grabs my attention. They have finally started to use 3D printers to make custom bikinis.

Unfortunately, no one has come up with a way to use a 3D printer to create a bikini model. I suppose that will come with a future upgrade. For now, we have to do it the old-fashioned way - either pay them lots of cash to show up or convince them you're European royalty.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to Campaign for President Obama's Re-Election

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recently threatened to remove President Barack Obama from the ballot this year in Arizona due to concerns that President Obama wasn't really born in the United States. He asked the State of Hawaii to confirm the validity of his birth certificate once more.

However, the State of Hawaii hasn't responded to Secretary Bennett's request. This is likely because the Republican Governor of Hawaii Linda Lingell signed a bill into law two years ago making it their state's official policy to ignore such requests because they are so ridiculous and troublesome.

On behalf of Democrats everywhere, I would like to express my profound gratitude to Secretary Bennett and birthers across this great nation. It would normally be very difficult for a sitting President to be re-elected with unemployment as high as it is and with approval ratings as low as President Obama's are.

However, Secretary Bennett and his ilk appear to be going out of their way to make President Obama look amazing in comparison. The more people talk about birth certificates, the less they are talking about other things. This can only be a positive for President Obama's re-election and Democrats nationally.

Writing a Novel

Sometimes I feel like writing a novel is like giving birth in slow motion.

Granholm to Romney

Former Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm argued in The Huffington Post that Mitt Romney did nothing to save Detroit.

What a coincidence! Neither did she.

Renting a Helicopter Gunship


Why, yes, there is a place where an ordinary guy like me can rent a helicopter gunship to pump round after glorious round of 7.62 mm ammunition into the side of a mountain. Full details of this are available on the hotel's web site.

Do we live in a magnificent country or what?

The only question that remains is: who wants to go with me?

Bedroom Mistakes Women Make

The folks at Web MD published a quiz recently to highlight "Bedroom Mistakes Women Make."

Surprisingly, not bringing a sandwich was not one of the ones they talked about.

RIP Adam Yauch - You Will Be Missed

Adam Yauch photo by Fabio Venni
Adam Yauch, co-founder of the Beastie Boys, past away today at the age of 47 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Back in the late 1980s and 90s, I used to hate the Beastie Boys. When one of their songs came on the radio, I always changed the station.

It was only really in the past decade or so that I've realized the pure beauty in the rebellious, if at times obnoxious, nature of their music.

Adam Yauch, you will be missed.
